• The minor flood warning for the River Derwent has been finalised this afternoon as minor flooding has eased in the lower reaches of the River Derwent below Meadowbank Dam.

• River levels are expected to remain high Friday evening and during Saturday, but flooding is not expected to extend to Macquarie Plains and New Norfolk, or in the Ouse and Clyde river tributaries.

• Strong and dangerous flows may remain a hazard throughout the River Derwent catchment over the next few days.
